About

Dear Cuciniale backers,

Thank you again for your great support and feedback during our Kickstarter campaign.

The time, however, does not stand still. In the meantime we have found a partner for pushing our system out to market. Unfortunately, we are sorry to say this also means we would have to stop our campaign mid-stride.

Stay part of our journey, we will keep posting updates here.

On behalf of the entire Cuciniale team, Our best culinary regards, Holger

 

Cooking with consistently good results requires years of professional cooking experience. Unfortunately most people end up serving a lot of under-/overcooked food.

The Cuciniale intelligent cooking system bundles a multi-sensor wireless probe able to peek inside the food, a powerful induction cooktop and an app for your mobile device (with Bluetooth Smart). In the app we combined the empirical know-how of chefs with artificial intelligence. With just a few taps, you'll be able to deliver top restaurant quality meals in the comfort of your own kitchen. 

 

 

 

 

The brain of our system. Based on the data of the sensor, algorithms and artificial intelligence it controls the cooktop.

  • Gives real-time information about your food and what you have to do
  • Notifies you (only) when you‘re needed
  • Preview of cooking process, estimated time
  • A useful excuse to enjoy the company of your friends or play games while cooking

The eyes of the trio. It uses bluetooth to report the state of your food to the app.

  • Six precise sensors inside
  • Measures the state of your food
  • Hooks onto cookware (e.g. pot rim)

The hands of the system. An induction hotplate that automatically adjusts heat throughout the cooking process.

  • Overheat protection & touch control
  • LED number display
  • Heat can also be adjusted manually

 Anything.

Well, almost anything. With our system you can boil, steam, simmer, poach, sauté, braise, deep-fry and even sous-vide on any kind of induction cookware.

It's suitable for fish, meat, poultry, veggies, rices dishes (such as risotto and paella), pasta, eggs or egg dishes (e.g. crepes), soups, sauces, etc.

  

Cooking has never been easier: For instance, let's cook a steak!

Cuciniale is based in Southern Germany. We are a team of food loving programmers, scientists, mathematicians, engineers and excellent chefs.

Experience has taught us, there are always uncertainties and difficulties to achieve consistently good cooking results at home. That's why we mixed the know-how of top chefs with artificial intelligence, added some sensors and connected it to a powerful induction cooker.

 

We want to open up access to awesome cooking for everyone.

Developing Cuciniale was great fun: Testing, eating, changing stuff, testing, eating... mmmh delicious! And now after months of testing, we have a working prototype.

Now we want to go a major step further: Getting together the whole system with cooktop, sensor and app and bringing it to you.

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

500.000 € : New sensor design (+NFC): New sensor design with more power efficient electronics.

 

1.000.000 € : New cooktop design:  Sleek cooktop design with new NFC functionality and a handle.

  

 

 

Risks and challenges

Since 2013 we have been selling the sensor and the app. Now, we have implemented our technology into a portable induction cooktop which is already produced by the global market leader in 120V and 230V version.

We've been working with this top manufacturer for one year to ensure our smart cooking system works seamlessly and provides consistently excellent cooking results. With any new device launch there still could be unpredictable issues that could cause minor scheduling delays in the manufacturing, technical approval and logistics process.


As engineers and chefs we are committed to delivering the highest quality product on time, and being transparent with our backers every step of the way.


A big, generous thank you from all of us at Cuciniale for your for helping us to bring the Cuciniale Smart cooking system to life
